Question about 2004 Ford Taurus
If applicable, if there's a "jiggle valve" make sure its in the upper position or you'll never burp out all the air in the system
you made sure there's no leaks after the job?
i use a no-spill type funnel with a radiator cap adaptor and raise the front end up so all the air will travel up and out of that point
heater on full blast while engine idling/ running until thermostat opens up ~ then you'll see a drop in coolant level at the no-spill funnel & add fluid as needed

Maybe you must check that your water system haven't got a air lock in the system, if it got a air lock look on top of your head on the water line and look for a bleeding screw loosen it a little bit put some water in the radiator or water bottle start the engine and when the water stat to come out the bleeding screw tighten the screw and fill water up to the right level close the cap and test your system good luck

Check if it is the right temperature range thermostat for your car. All thermostats look the same, but have different temperature ratings. Did you install it backwards? That can sometimes be the problem. (from experience!).
Take the thermostat out of the car and test it. Don't assume that because it is new, it will work. Sometimes sitting on a shelf in a parts dealer's warehouse, it can get "stuck". Take the thermostat out of the car and put it in a bucket. Most thermostats open from about 170 to 180 degrees F. Boiling water is 212 degrees F.
Boil a pot of water, and then pour it into the bucket with the thermostat in it, such that the entire thermostat is under the boiling water. You should see the thermostat valve open. Don't worry, you won't hurt the thermostat. It is actually built to take temperatures higher than boiling water because the car's cooling system is pressurized and so can exceed the boiling point of water, without the water turning to steam.
